Honor, integrity, and loyalty are how Deputy US Marshal Kreed Sinacola lives his life. A former SEAL now employed by the Special Operations Group of the US Marshal Service, Kreed spent most of his life working covert operations and avoiding relationships. Never one to mix business with pleasure, his boundaries blur and his convictions are put to the test when he finally comes face-to-face with the hot computer geek he’s been partnered with. Hell-bent on closing the ongoing case for his longtime friend, he pushes past his own limits and uncovers more than he expects.
Aaron Stuart strives for one thing: justice. Young and full of idealism, his highly sought after computer skills land him a position with the National Security Agency. Aaron’s biggest hazard at his job is cramped fingers, but all that changes when he is drawn into the middle of a dangerous federal investigation. Aaron gets more than he bargained for when the FBI partners him with a handsome and tempting deputy US marshal. His attraction to the inked up, dark-haired man provides another kind of threat altogether. Aaron tries desperately to place a firewall around his heart and fight his developing feelings, knowing one misstep on his part could ultimately destroy him.
The solution isn’t as easy as solving the case, which is treacherous enough as it is. But the growing sexual attraction between them threatens to derail more than just Kreed’s personal convictions as he quickly learns temptation and matters of the heart rarely fit easily into the rules he’s lived by. Will Kreed be able to convince Aaron to open his heart and face the fact that sometimes the answers aren’t always hidden in code?
Starting where Full Disclosure finished up with the information that Aaron found being pertinent to the Marshals case sees him having to join the team on a temporary basis as Kreed’s partner.
Aaron is not a happy bunny for reasons you will learn as the book progresses. The young hacker has more secrets than he knows what to do with and the annoying yet expected attraction he feels to Kreed is not what he needs and he tries his hardest to fight it. The two weeks they spend undercover together along with the all the undertones of flirting has both men breaking and falling into each other’s arms and the one available bed.
Both of these men give off a strong alpha vibe. Their descriptions will make you melt, their interactions are hot and tantalising yet for some reason I didn’t believe in their attraction until nearly eighty percent into the book. With the case wound up, the bad guys dead or locked up they take off for a break together, there is a lap dance on the beach, and suddenly it felt like a lightbulb lit in my head and I could finally see it! The middle of the story was too slow, there were too many secrets and too much time spent trying to avoid what was inevitably going to happen.
To stand any chance Aaron has to be honest and finally fess up all his secrets – one of them is a real doozy and could make or break them by virtue of who Kreed is and what he stands for. There are some very funny moments from the rest of the guys from the Nice Guys universe that added to the story. A drunk Cody, the ongoing jealousy between Mitch and Colt and of course the relationship between Mitch and Kreed.
Overall this was a nice wrap up to the series and if the note at the end is to be believed we may see these guys again.
